10443204_mLuke 11: 42-46 Teresa of Avila

Sometimes we are so concerned with externals that we forget what matters most.  It’s the interior that makes the difference and lasts. Cleansing one’s interior takes a lot of continuous work.  When a disciple becomes pre-occupied with externals, it’s easy to mistake propriety for holiness.

Dear Lord, help me to be committed to integrity.  May the power of your Spirit inspire me to be what I appear to be.
